Totaling quizzes in separate modules

Jan 22, 2013

Hi everyone,

My organization is currently creating a course with 11 modules in Storyline. The client would like to have a quiz at the end of each module, and then have a slide or tab or some place in the course where there is a list of the modules with the learner's score after each one so that a person can track their progress from module to module. Additionally, once the learner has completed the final module and taken the final test, the client would like to have the learner's total score be displayed which would be a cumulative total of all the quizzes plus the final test score. We're struggling with how to do this technically in Storyline and are wondering if anyone has done this before or has suggestions for how to do so.

Thank you!

Hi Corey, welcome!

If you're not already using one, maybe you'd want to consider using a Learning Management System (LMS). Storyline is designed primarily as an elearning development tool to be used in conjunction with Articulate Online or your own LMS.

For the best results and most accurate reporting, we recommend using Articulate Online:

Any LMS that is compliant with SCORM, AICC, or Tin Can API will also provide accurate tracking capabilities. Here are some open-source LMS options that may meet your tracking needs:

*  Dokeos:

*  eFront:

*  Moodle:

This will only work if your users completes all 11 modules in one sitting.  Attached is the sample of how I did it.

For each module quiz I created a results page.  You may choose to include it or not in the navigation. 

Then I created a page which will serve as a lightbox slide.  On it I have module name and the %Results.ScorePercent% variable that is created by each quiz results page.   I added a button on some of the pages so that the user can click the button to see the results.  You could include that where you feel it is appropriate.

The final Exam also has a results page, and I included all questions from all quizzes, plus the final exam in the grading.  It seems to work. 

However, if your learner leaves the course, I don't think the varaibles from the previous quizzes are retained.  They would have to go back and retake those tests to successfully pass the course.
